Recommended Website: Castles &Medieval Life

Age Range: 6-10 (about grades 1-5, with adult supervision)

ClickScholar Fran suggested this website that provides a kind of virtual tour of a castle through colorful illustrations and text that explain every room or area including:

  • The Great Chamber
  • The Great Hall
  • The Chapel
  • The Drawbridge and Portcullis
  • The Storeroom and Armory    
  • The Keep or Great Tower
  • The Kitchen
  • The Dungeon
  • The Battlements
  • And more!

When you’re through learning about castle structure, head to the “Castles and Medieval Life Resource Center” on this site that contains links to information, games, and interactives about British history, castles, knights, the coat of arms, tapestries, medieval times, and castle defense including catapults, trebuchets, battering rams and more!  (Note: Some of the links lead to error messages, but don’t get discouraged.  Keep clicking on menu items and you’ll be rewarded with fun learning resources for your kids.)
